# Algebra A (A)

#### Algebra A (A) is the first semester of Algebra A.

#### Algebra A and Algebra B make up a two-year Algebra program. The main goal of Algebra is to develop fluency in working with linear equations. This 2 year program gives students the opportunity to study, learn, and practice algebraic concepts at a pace that allows additional learning activities, projects, and discussions. In this course, students will work with tables, graphs, and equations and solve linear equations and inequalities and systems of linear equations and inequalities. Throughout the course, students will have opportunities to apply mathematical skills and make meaningful connections to life’s experiences.
